UTU Concurrent Enrollment

Dixie State University (DSU) is now Utah Tech University. Course offerings and DSU Concurrent Enrollment processes remain the same. Our website and SIS will be updated soon to reflect this change.

A new way to earn college credit while attending LAU.

LAU has a partnership with Utah Tech University (UTU) that allows LAU students to access UTU’s online Concurrent Enrollment (CE) courses. By enrolling in these courses, high school students can earn college credits and fulfill LAU’s graduation requirements at the same time. In addition, LAU students living in Washington County have the option to attend in-person CE classes on the UTU campus in St. George. 

UTU’s Concurrent Enrollment courses are open to LAU students in grades 10-12. Special consideration will be made for certain 9th graders that have done exceptionally well in middle school.

Note: There are a limited number of seats available for CE students. Register early, if possible, and add your name to the waitlist if needed. 

Where Do I Start?

Requirements

  • Fulfill all UTU prerequisites and CE eligibility requirements as outlined on this page
  • Take an Accuplacer Next-Generation test and/or Aleks math test (for MATH 1050 and above) or provide ACT scores if the course requires it. Check the “Prereq” column in the UTU online course list for details. 
  • Pay tuition and fees.

Select Courses in SIS

To enroll in a CE course and receive both high school and college credit, students must register for the desired course(s) with both LAU and UTU.

  • Log in to your SIS parent account, then use the Registration tab under My Students to select their UTU courses.

Note: In SIS, you are only indicating interest in UTU courses. Additional steps are required to officially apply and register for concurrent enrollment. (See step 3 below.)

Apply to UTU

After you have selected your student’s preferred UTU courses in SIS, your student is ready to apply for concurrent enrollment at UTU.

New students are required to fill out the UTU Concurrent Enrollment application and pay a one-time $35 application fee online.

Once your student is accepted, they will receive an email from UTU and be assigned a Digital ID number.

Note: UTU CE students must reapply to UTU each fall, however, they will not be required to pay the admission fee again.

Register for UTU Courses

Concurrent enrollment students do not register the same way traditional UTU college students do. Students should register for classes by contacting the UTU enrollment team directly by email at

Sheila Cannon – Sheila.Cannon@utahtech.edu
Emma Lunceford – Emma.Lunceford@utahtech.edu
Kevin Simmons –  Kevin.Simmons@utahtech.edu

or phone at 435-652-7739 to select courses.

  • If registering by email, UTU will reply via email if a seat is available, then register your student accordingly.
  • Log in to the UTU Main Campus link with your student’s Digital ID number to view course details. Anything labeled as section 40-49 is an online course.
  • Once registered, students can view their classes in their My UT account.

Begin Classes

Students begin classes through Canvas here on the first day of each semester. Students are required to purchase their own books or pay for an electronic copy as instructed on their syllabus. If applicable, the electronic cost is added to student tuition.

UTU Concurrent Enrollment Calendar

Parents and Students are responsible for UTU registration and will need to keep track of registration dates. See details on the UTU Concurrent enrollment calendar.

The General Education Certificate from UTU is a total of 31 credits, entirely completing a student’s required General Education for an Associate’s Degree. The General Education Certificate will be recognized by all public universities in the state of Utah, and it will fulfill all general education requirements. Most of the general education credits you complete towards the General Education Certificate will be accepted by private universities in Utah as well.

Please see the UTU General Education Certificate page for all of the requirements.

We encourage students to contact their specific college of choice to confirm that these credits will transfer.

Utah System of Higher Education

UTU is part of the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), so their credits are transferable to all colleges in that system. However, some USHE colleges have different rules for which credits apply toward their general education requirements. For planning purposes, you’ll want to check with the specific college your student plans on attending to see how these courses fulfill their general education requirements.

If your student plans on attending a university outside of the USHE, you’ll want to ensure the credits are transferable before taking a course through UTU.
